Connie Britton Shares Heartwarming Story About Adopting Son Eyob

Connie Britton has us in our feelings today!

The 53-year-old Nashville actress appeared on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday (January 14) where she opened up about her decision to adopt son Eyob from Ethiopia back in 2011 when he was nine-months-old.

“I had no idea what I was even getting into,” Connie shared. “So it wasn’t so much ‘I can do this’ as much as I knew I wanted to be a mom.”

She continued, “And, in truth, both of my parents had passed away within three years, and suddenly I was like, ‘Oh, no. My family is no more. I mean, I have a twin sister, but that was a big loss, losing my parents. And I wasn’t in a relationship that felt like it was going to be a marriage relationship.”

Connie shared a super rare photo of Eyob, now 9-years-old, while celebrating her birthday last March.

“And so I was like, ‘What am I waiting for? I know I want to adopt. I can do this,’” Connie said before adding with a laugh, “But that was a little delusional because it turns out it’s a really hard thing to do, but I would only encourage anybody to do it. You can do it!”
